If you're looking for something a little different to add to your kitchen garden, then we heartily recommend that you consider a Medlar tree.
The Medlar is a completely underrated fruit tree in our opinion - providing tart Medlar fruits that need to undergo the process of bletting (maturing, softening and fermenting) before they can be eaten raw. Medlars are a fantastic addition to preserves and we can't understand why they're not more readily available!
A hugely underrated variety of fruit that has a sublime apple-pear sauce flavour and texture. Self Fertile. Quince A rootstock.
Available from approximately mid November 2014
Supplied as a bare root tree pruned to approximately 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall including roots.
